MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 13, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Vanilla and milk chocolate benefit from roasted edges and earthy potato depths for a nourishing dessert brew.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam surrounds the brown-edged black.
-A fruity touch gives the flavour profile a little more complexity.
-The high sweetness and soft prickling of carbonation don’t help drinkability.
-When in the mood for dessert, this is a quality sweet Stout.
-The finish lacks bitterness or spiciness to balance out the sweetness.

Bottle.
